No finish is more pleasing to anyone than a Pure White Porcelain Enamel finish. 
Its attractiveness and beauty never tire one. White is an emblem of purity, and any 
room done in snow white enamel gives one a feeling of absolute cleanliness. A parlor 
cr living room in which the woodwork and furniture are finished with "Towerllte," and 
the draperies, floor coverings and upholstery in a dainty shade (and most any shade 
harmonizes with white) presents an extremely rich appearance that cannnt be accom- 
plished with any other treatment. This you may say applies to any white. Not so. 
The porcelain -like texture of "Towerllte" gives that pleasing effect that is entirely 
absent in nearly all white finishes. Try a can of "Towerllte" and you will be con- 
vinced. Because of its smooth, glassy finisli it is also easily kept clean, thus being 
thoroughly sanitary. Because of this quality, "Towerllte" is used extensively in hos- 
pitals and public buildings. It is also the ideal finish for bath rooms, kitchens, and 
other rooms. 

"TOWERLITE"— A Perfect, Permanent Snow-White Enamel 

"Towerllte" is not only snow white when first applied, but is guaranteed to he per- 
manent—it will not turn yellow, scale, chip, or crack. It gives a rich, hard, perfectly 
white gloss, that may be rubbed to a dull finish. 

Unless the surface to which you wish to apply "Towerllte" is now painted white 
and is smooth, you should. In order to secure the best results, sand down the surface 
(the smoother the better) and apply one or more coats of No. 10% Inside Flat White 
Coverall House Paint. In other words, the surface should be thoroughly white, and in 
any event it is best to put on one coat of this flat white to safeguard against any 
coloring matter in the paint now on coming up through the enamel coat. The better 
the foundation, the better the finish you will get with "Towerllte." 

If the surface to be finished is plastered walls that have been painted before, wash 
the surface clean with warm water to which you have added a little ammonia. Then 
after the plaster surface is dry, sandpaper smooth with No. 00 sandpaper and dust 
off the loose particles. Now apply two or three coats of Inside Flat White Coverall 
House Paint and after dry, sand lightly with No. 00 sandpaper and apply "Towerllte." 

One gallon of Coverall Flat White will cover about 350 square feet two coots, and a 
gallon of "Towerllte" will cover from 200 to 250 square feet two coals. For applying 
"Towerllte" use our varnish brush No. 3B618, and for the flat white we recommend 
Rubberset Brush No. 3B6 27. If you have only a small job such as a few pieces of 
furniture, we suggest our Fitch Brush No. 3BG5 8. 

If you wish to enamel surfaces, either wood or plaster, that have not been painted 
before, treat the wood witli a priming coat or Inside White Coverall to which you havo 
added about a half pint of turpentine: but the plastered wall should first be coated 
with our Fresco Wall size No. 3B7836. Then follow with two coats of Inside Flat 
White Coverall, as hereinbefore described. 

"Towerlite" is the highest grade of white enamel made, 
quality retail at S4.00 and more per gallon.

For Interior Finish These Enamels 
Cannot Be Surpassed 

On old woodwork or old furniture, you can ac- 
complish surprising results by the use of these 
Superior Liquid Enamels and at a very small cost. 
They produce a perfectly smooth, glossy finish that 
is exceptionally easy to keep clean and may be 
washed repeatedly without injury. It is therefore 
thoroughly sanitary. 

It is an excellent finish for wood or metal. Just 
the finish for metal ceilings, kitchen walls, bath- 
rooms, cupboards, casings and baseboards, furni- 
ture — in fact, for all interior wood or metal work 
including metal bedsteads. Liquid Enamel Paint 
dries hard in 24 hours. It is tough and elastic, not 
easily marred o"r scratched, and will retain its 
lustre and beauty for several years. 

If the surface you wish to enamel has never 
been painted apply a coat of primer (our Inside 
Flat White Coverall) in the case of new woodwork. 
If the surface is plastered wall, then apply first 
a coat of Fresco Wall Size No. 3B7836. In the 
event the wall lias been papered, then remove the 
paper by thorough soaking, and scraping off witli 
a putty knife or similar tool. After giving a wall a chance to dry, 
sand the surface with No. 00 sand paper until smooth, and brush 
off the dust. Then treat with size as above described. Now apply 
two or three coats of Liquid Enamel Paint of the color you select, 
and you will have a job you will be pleased with. If the surface 
had been previously painted, and is in good condition, one coat 
may be sufficient to obtain the desired results. 

One gallon will covey from 200 to 250 square feet, two coats. If the color you paint 
with Is white, or ono of the light shades, and the surface you wish to cover is now painted 
somo dark color, it is best to first apply one coat of Inside Flat White Coverall House 
Paint. Use a good varnish brush. We recommend our No. 3B618 for large surfaces like 
walls and woodwork, or No. 3B656 for a small job such as furniture. 

You Can Do the Work Yourself 

Your Choice of Black, White and 12 
Rich and Beautiful Tints 

As it is popular to have a "blue room," a "red 
room," or one finished in some other desirable color, 
Liquid Enamel Paint affords you the opportunity 
of having just what you want in this line. Then, 
too, it is a durable finish — it will not crack nor 
peel, and retains its high lustre for a long time. 
Very pleasing effects may also be accomplished by 
the use of harmonious shades, as for instance one 
shade for the side walls, with a lighter tint of the 
same color for the ceiling, and a darker shade for 
the woodwork and furniture. 

Liquid Enamel Paint is a superior article, and 
because we quote it at this low price it should not 
be compared with cheap enamels that are offered 
on the market. It is a superior grade, else we 
would not put our name on it. As it is very easy 
to apply, anyone can use Liquid Enamel Paint 
with success. 

By referring to Page 18, you will be delighted 
with the beautiful colors in which Liquid Enamel 
Paint is furnished. It is so easy for you to change 
unsightly woodwork or furniture to a thing of 
beauty, and at so small a cost, that you can offer 
yourself no excuse for not immediately making the improvement. 

If you hesitate because you are not sure of the results you will 
get, write to us explaining the conditions and our paint expert will 
gladly give you any advice you request. Remember, any such 
service is cheerfully given, and is absolutely free to you. 

In ordering, state color you wish. For colors, see Page 18.

Varnish stain is especially adapted for re- 
finishing woodwork or furniture that has 
been previously finished with paint, varnish 
or stains. It is also used on new work or 
soft wood, such as pine, where a rich gloss 
stained finish is desired. It stains and 
varnishes with one application, and dries 
hard with a fine lustre in from 8 to 12 
hours. It answers every requirement for 
refinishing interior woodwork and furniture, 
where it is desired to do so at a nominal 

On old work that has been previously stained or var- 
nished use a shade in varnish stains similar to the old 
work or a darker shade to obtain the best results. One 
coat is usually sufficient for refinishing such old work. 

Where varnish stain is used on an old painted surface 
a coat of ground color No, 1SS^ should first he applied. 
This gives a solid ground color, and the texture of newly 
planed wood. Then apply two coats of varnish stain of 
the shade desired. One gallon will cover 400 square feet, 
one coat.

An interior white that is whiter than any

tion, and, being ground very fine in oil, it 
has a greater covering capacity than pure 
white lead. It is also much more econom- 
ical, and being non-poisonous it is used 
quite generally for interior finish in hos- 
pitals and public buildings. Excellent as an 
undercoat for enamels.

White Lead 

We believe It is a physical impossibility for any painter 
to mix lead and oil. and other materials properly, thor- 
oughly and accurately enough by band to secure a paint 
that will accord the good service, protection and economy 
that is found in Tower Brand 100% Pure Prepared Paint. 
It is surely evident that a paint manufacturer with 
modern machinery, expert chemists, and the best materi- 
als at his command, can produce a paint far superior, 
and at a smaller expense. 

To those, however, who desire to mix their own paint, 
we positively guarantee our own brand of white lead to 
bo strictly pure, full net weight, and in quality and serv- 
ice the very best it is possible to make.

of the market changing constantly, we do not quote prices

Our line of dry colors is complete. For the pur-

Some of the sundry colors we quote below are fre- 
quently used for painting purposes by simply mixing 
with linseed oil. This we do not recommend. Unless 
you have the facilities for putting the mixture through 
a paint mill your paint will lack that fineness and 
durability that is necessary in good paint. In Coverall 
and Tower Brand Paint you get fineness, covering 
capacity, durability, and at the end, economy It 
will paint your barn the cheapest, wear the best, and

You Can Do Your Own Painting 

If you will note carefully the suggestions given on these pages, and follow closely tbo 
complete directions included with every can of our paint and varnish it will be a 
very easy matter for you to do your own work with thoroughly satisfactory results. 

It is true that the experienced painter will do the work more quickly than you can 
do it, but unless time is an important factor, you can just as well save the extra labor 

Painting and decorating, like everything else, are largely a question of using a little 
common sense. With reasonable care and the necessary tools, there is no reason why 
you cannot produce results that will bo almost up to the professional standard. 

Follow our instructions and you will find painting so easy that you will consider 
it a pleasure. 

The Best Time to Paint 

Always select a dry day. Be sure that the surface to be painted is thoroughly dry 
and free from dirt, grease, or old paint. If paint is applied on a surface that appears 
dry but is water-soaked, it is bound to give you trouble, as tho paint will peel or blister 
when the sun beats against it. Don't attempt to put on paint when the thermometer 
registers below oO degrees, as the paint is likely to thicken, or begin what is com- 
monly known as "crawling." By crawling we mean that the paint will collect in drops 
and not cover the entire surface, leaving many bare spots. Crawling also happens by 
tbo surface being too glossy. Such being the case, bo sure to sandpaper the gloss to a 
flat or smooth surface. 

How to Estimate the Amount of Paint 
You Need 

The following is an example of a house 30 feet wide, 40 feet long, and 20 feet 
high. Front, 30 feet; rear, 30 feet; one side, 40 feet; other side, 40 feet; total, 140 
feet. Tlie total multiplied by height, 20 feet, is 2.S00 square feet; 2,800 divided by 
300 is 9. This shows that approximately 9 gallon of paint is required to cover two 
coats. This rule will vary a trifle owing to the condition of the 
wood. If it lias been painted once, or if the surface is smooth and 
hard, less than the above quantity will do. A slightly greater 
amount will be needed if the building is new, or the lumber has 
never been painted. If such is the case, be sure to shellac all knots, 
and sappy or pitchy spots before putting on the first coat. A slightly 
greater amount will also be needed if the surface is old and porous. 

If a roof is to be painted, the paint will probably differ from 
that on the body of the house; therefore, the measurements should 
be kept separate. If one side of the roof measures 15 feet by 30 
feet, multiply 15 by 30, which will give you 450 square feet for 
the one side of the roof. -Multiply this by two (to get dimensions 
of the two sides of the roof), which will give you 900 square feet. 
Divide tins by 45 0. as it will require one gallon of paint to cover 
about 450 square feet, one coat. 

How to Use the Paint 

Be sure to stir the paint thoroughly. Cut out the entire head of 
the can. Pout off oil into another vessel and stir the balance in 
the can thoroughly, gradually adding the oil until all has been re- 
turned. Then pour it back and forth from one can into another, 
until it is thoroughly mixed. All paints must be stirred from time 
to time while using to prevent the pigment from settling to the bottom. 
When, painting new. surfaces it is always well to mix a Dint to one 
quart of pure boiled linseed oil with a gallon of paint fur the first 
coat. Always be sure to use pure raw linseed oil. It is unnecessary 
for you to use driers if you are sure of getting the pure raw linseed 
oil. When placing your order for paint it is always well for you to 
place aii order for oil at the same time. As we handle only the 
pure oil you will then be sure to get the right material. Do not 
try to use cheap ochres for a first coat, as it is bound to give you 
an inferior job of painting. If you use our paints as per our 
instructions you will have no trouble and will be sure to have a 
good job. On second coat work, let the first coat harden or dry 
from four to five days. Then use the paint just as it conies in 
the can, but be sure to stir it thoroughly and mix it as per our

nd dirt. To remove grease 
and sappy and pitchy epots 

How to Use Interior Paints for Walls, 
Woodwork, Etc. 

Our Coverall Paint is an excellent paint for all kinds of inside painting. In kitchens, 
where the woodwork or walls are more or less greasy, wash same with a solution of 
salsoda and warm water, using about one-half pound of salsoda to a bucket of water 
together with a little soap. Do not apply paint until the surface is perfectly dry. Our 
four-inch brush No. 3B701 is ideal for this kind of work. 

Flat Wall Paint 

If the wall has been kalsomined it is necessary to wash off with a sponge and warm 
water. Then use our size No. 3BS73S before putting on the first coat of paint. If, 
however, the wall has been painted before, it will not be necessary to use the size. 
Use our Flat Wall Paint described on Page 18. 

For Kalsomiue and Fresco Colors 

Always be sure to remove any previous water coloring or kalsomiue. This can be 
done with a sponge and warm water. A little vinegar or salsoda will help to soften 
tho kalsomiue and do a quicker job. Before putting on fresh kalsomiue. be sure to 
use our Siting No. 3B873S. Be sure that the sizing is perfectly dry before applying 
the kalsomiue or fresco colors. Be sure to mix the kalsoniine or fresco as per the 
directions on tho can or package, or see Page 19 in this book for further directions. 


On new work, where it is desirable to bring out the natural grain of the wood, it 
is necessary to first fill the grain to get a smooth and hard surface upon which to 
apply the varnish. For this purpose we furnish filler in both paste and liquid form. 

Hardwood Paste Filler 

For Open-Grained Woods, Such as Oak and Ash 

Thin our Filler with benzine or turpentine to the consistency of a thin varnish or 
cream, and apply with a brush evenly so as to fill all the pores thoroughly. Let the 
filler stand fifteen or twenty minutes until the gloss disappears; then rub off with a 
cloth, hemp or burlap. Be careful to rub across the grain of the wood. Should the 
filler dry too quickly for your work, add a little raw linseed oil. Wait from eight to 
ten hours after filling, and then shellac and finish as desired. Use our Filler No. 

This Filler settles less and requires less First Coater in finishing than almost any 
other filler yet produced. It makes a very hard, smooth surface, which holds the First 
Coater and varnish up evenly, thus making a fine, durable and economical finish.

To Varnish New Floors 

All open grained woods, such as oak, ash. walnut, etc., must be 
first filled with hardwood paste filler. Use our No. 3BS210, as 
per directions, listed under Hardwood Paste Filler, see Page 4 
of this book. Allow about two days for the filler to dry; then sand- 
paper with No. 1 sandpaper, and dust thoroughly. You are then 
ready for the varnish. 

Apply at least two coats of varnish, and allow two days between 
coats for drying. Before applying the last coat, the surface should 
bo rubbed lightly with steel wool or sandpaper, to kill the gloss 
and allow the last coat to "take hold" better. 

To Varnish Old Floors 

Revarnishing over old varnish should not be done unless the 
door is in good condition, and is not scaling or chipping off. If 
floor is in good condition, fill all cracks and crevices with Crack 
and Crevice Filler, No. 3B822S. Sandpaper the surface smoothly, 
clean thoroughly, then proceed with the varnish. 

If floor is not in good condition, the old varnish should be removed 
with Paint and Varnish Remover, No. 3B7799. Then clean the 
surface thoroughly with a cloth and benzine; sandpaper well, and 
refinish as in new work. 

Do not varnish over wax. For floors that have been waxed it is 
necessary to remove every particle of wax before applying the varnish. 
This can be done by using steel wool and turpentine. 

To Varnish Close-Grained 

Pine, maple, etc., require no filler of any kind. Simply apply three coats of varnish 
direct to the wood. Thin the first coat with a little turpentine. Use from one-half pint to 
one pint of turpentine to one gallon of varnish. Follow with second coat, and after 
allowing plenty of time for drying (in most cases two days), sandpaper lightly, and 
apply last or finishing coat just as the varnish comes in the can. Brush out well and 

Never use shellac or liquid filler of any kind for undercoat on floors to be finished 
with varnish. Simply apply the varnish direct to the wood, except in case of hard 
and open grain woods, such as oak, ash, walnut, etc., which should first be filled with 
hardwood paste filler, as previously stated. 

For a Rubbed Finish 

When the last coat of varnish is thoroughly dry and hardened, the rubbing is done 
with rubbing felt and fine pumice stone. Dip the rubbing felt lightly in water, or raw 
linseed oil, and then dip tho moist felt in the pumice stone and rub the surface up and 
down wth the grain of tho wood. A smoother dull-rubbed finish can be obtained 
by using the oil. 

Rotten stone is use for polishing varnished surfaces, after being rubbed down with 
pumice stone. Dip a piece of cloth or felt into raw oil or water, then into the rotten 
stone, and rub the surface to a polish. Finish by rubbing off all the oil and powdered 
stone that may be left on the surface, using a soft flannel cloth. 

You can save time and procure a good job by using our Rubbed Finish Varnish 
No. 3BSG58. 

How to Remove Old Paint and Varnish 

On woodwork and furniture where the old finish is in very bad condition it la best 
to remove the old paint or varnish to get a smooth surface, and thus obtain a good 
job of refinishing. 

For Removing 

Paint, Varnish, Enamel, Shellac, Wax, etc., from Wood, Metal, Glass or other iurfaces 
Apply our Paint and Varnish remover No. 3B7799 freely with a glue-set brush 
After allowing it to stand for about five minutes remove the softened old coating with 
a dull knife or painter's scraper. Use a stiff brush for carvings or mouldings For 
very old or many-coated work, apply a second coat of tho Remover and treat in the 
same way. Then clean the surface with a rag, or piece of wasto dipped in the Remover 
or benzine. 

Do not use near the fire or exposed light or lamp. 

Refinishing Old Woodwork 
or Furniture 

To change the finish on any woodwork or furniture, whether it needs refinishine or 
you simply want to apply a finish to harmonize with other furniture or decorations, 
colored varnish or varnish stains are remarkably good because the cost is low. Th«y are 
easy to apply (anyone can do the woiS) and the results are most gratifying 





How to Paint and Varnish 

(Continued from Page 7) 


This finish stands at the head, not only for refinishing, but also 
for new work, whether it be woodwork or furniture. 

For new floors or woodwork, if the wood is open-grained like 
oak or ash, fill first with our Paste Filler; then, after allowing 2-t 
hours to dry, apply two coats of "Co-Var-Finish," any 'color you 
wish. But if you wish to retain the natural color of the wood, 
use "natural" Co-Var-Finish. Be sure to allow at least 48 hours 
between coats, dose-grained woods like maple, cherry, birch or 
mahogany require no filler. Just apply the two coats of Co-Var- 
Finish as above explained. 

For old floors or woodwork, if in fairly good condition, touch 
up the bare spots, then apply the Co-Var-Finish. If in bad con- 
dition, or discolored, or if you wish to apply a lighter color, 
apply first a coat of Co-Var-Finish "ground color;" then apply 
the desired color of Co-Var-Finish. For finishing furniture, see 
that the surface is 'clean and dry, then sandpaper all rough spots. 
If some pla'ces are badly worn, touch up those places first, then 
apply Co-Var-Finish. 

Varnish Stains 

In every instance, first see that the surface to be fin- 
ished is smooth, clean, dry, and free from dust. 

On new work, if the wood is open-grained, such as oak 
or ash treat first with our Paste Filler. After allowing 
3G hours to dry, sandpaper lightly and give two coats or 
Varnish Stain, allowing 30 hours between coats for drying. 
On close-grained woods, such as hard pine, maple and 
cherry, omit the paste filler, but it is wise to apply a 
coat of our Liquid Wood Filler instead. 

On old work, if the surface is in fairly good condition, 
touch up the bare spots with Varnish Stain, and after dry 
apply a coat of Varnish Stain. However, if the surface is in 
bad condition, it is best to remove the old finish by the aid 
of our Print and Varnish Remover. Then sandpaper smooth 
and apply two coats of Varnish Stain the same as for new 
work. If the finish you wish to apply is lighter than the 
finish now on the article to be finished, it is necessary then 
to anply a coat of "Ground Color" Varnish Stain, to obtain 
a lighter foundation. Then apply the desired color of Varnish 
Stain allowing plenty of time between coats for drying. 
Use a varnish brush, and flow on smoothly and evenly 
as in varnishing. 

How to Do Graining 

On woodwork or furniture that has been previously paiidcd. 
and an imitation of grain of wood is desired, this can oe 
very easily accomplished by the aid of our handy graining 
tools. For these tools, refer to Page 25 of this book. 

To grain, apply first a coat of "Ground Color ' Co-Var- 
Finish, after seeing that the surface to be grained is sanded 
smooth. Or if the surface is very rough, it would be best 
to remove the paint or varnish with our Paint and varnish 
ltemover. The ground color then completely covers the old 
finish and makes the necessary foundation for graining. ,.,,,., „j 

One coat of ground color is usually sufficient, but if still rough, it is best to sand- 
paper tills down until smooth and apply a second coat of ground color. Each coat 
should dry over night before the next coat is applied. 

Now put on a coat of Graining Compound to give color for the graining, being par- 
ticular to spread on very thin and brush out smoothly and evenly, covering only a 
small surface at a time. As Graining Compound is quick drying, the graining tools 
must be used before the compound begins to dry. Apply Graining Compound with a 
brush that has not previously been used in varnish, paint, or any preparation con- 
taining turpentine or oil. 

After allowing one hour for the graining to dry, apply "natural" Co-Var-Finish to 
obtain a gloss finish. For noors it is best to apply two coats of "natural," allowing 
sufficient time between these two coats for drying. 

If you have never tried to do any graining before, it is wise to practice a little by 
first graining a small panel, to try out the graining tools a few times before starting 
the wS. By following the directions carefully you will be sure to get satisfactory results. 

Stucco* Concrete, and Cement Coating 

For coating and damp-proofing cement, brick or masonry surfaces, use our Concrete 
and Cement Coating. It comes in the package, ready for general use. If thinning is 
required, reduce with pure turpentine only. 

Bo sure to stir the paint thoroughly before using. The paint should also be stirred 
occasionally while being used. Keep covered when not in use. 

See that the surface is dry. clean, 
moved, which can be done with 
brush like ordinary paint. 

Two coats are required on all now work, and in most cases on old work, especially 
where protect on against dampness and discoloration is desired. The first coat should 
be brusl ed well into the pores of the surface freely enough to J'V, 'K^e slond 
nressions Not le=s than 3 davs must be allowed for drying before. applying the second 
cotfTto applying the I second coat, paint should not be reduced: it should [be i appjtaJ 
just as it conies in the can after thoroughly stirring, and brushed out to an even, 
uniform coating. 

Any of the shades can bo made lighter by the addition of our white Concrete and 
Cement Coating. 

Screen Paint 

RMr thnrmitjhlv hpfnre usine Have the surface to be coated clean and free from 
dust ^ AppIs e B "nly ami freVly! If the paint is too thick, thin with a little turpentine. 

Automobile, Carriage, Wagon, 
and Implement Paint 

The surface to be painted should be dry. clean, and free from grease and dust. If 
there are any grease spots be sure to cleanse them with benzine or turpentine. It is 
always well to put a coat of shellac on any parts that are likely to be greasy. It s 
not necessary to remove all of the paint on a job of this kind. All that is necessary is 
to thoroughly sandpaper or use steel wool for rubbing down the body parts to a smooth 
finish. For Carriages and Automobiles use our Paint No. 3B7S12 with further di- 
rections on can. For Wagon and Implement paint use our Paint iNo. 3B7S18, with 
full directions on the can. 

How to Enamel 

To do a first-class job of white enameling, use our Towerlite 
White Enamel. 

New Woodwork — The surface to be finished must be clean, dry 
and sandpapered smoothly. All cracks or imperfections should be 
filled with putty or paste filler and all knots should be coated 
with white shellac. Apply two coats of Coverall House Paint, 
No. 10y 2 flat white, allowing 24 hours between coats for drying. 
This will give you an even, solid and perfectly white foundation 
to work on. After the second coat is thoroughly dry, sandpaper 
lightly with 00 sandpaper, after which you are ready for the 
Towerlite finish. Use a fine bristle full body varnish brush for 
this work. In applying the first coat of Towerlite, brush out 
carefully, well and evenly. Allow at least 48 hours for drying. 
Sandpaper lightly with 00 sandpaper, then apply the second coat, 
which should be flowed on and worked out freely and evenly. 

New Plastered Walls— Walls must lie hard and dry before they are finished. All 
cracks and holts should he filled with plaster paris. Apply one coat of our Fresco Wall 
Size This should he applied thinly, evenly and well brushed in. After allowing 24 
hours to dry, finish as above specified for new woodwork, except that one coat of the 
flat white will suffice in most cases. 

Old Work — The surface to be enameled should bo dry, 
clean, free from grea?e and dirt, and sandpapered smoothly. 
If the old paint is in poor condition, cracking or peeling, 
it should be removed. After the surface to be enameled 
is in proper condition, proceed as above outlined on new 
work. The number of coats to be applied will depend 
entirely upon the condition of the surface. Where refinish- 
ing over an old surface previously finished in white or some 
light shade, one coat of "flat white," No. lOU, and two 
"coats of Towerlite will usually suffice. 

Remove the entire top of can and stir the paint thoroughly. 
Stir with a flat paddle, from the bottom up, until the paint 
is smooth and of an even consistency. 

Light and good circulation of air are necessary for the dry- 
ing of high grade enamel. Enamel must not be brushed out 
like ordinary paint, but instead should be flowed on and 
worked out smoothly and evenly, which can be done suc- 
cessfully only with a fine bristle, full body varnish brush. 
Enamel, if left exposed, is liable to become heavy and work 
hard. This can be remedied by the addition of a littls 
turpentine. Too much turpentine will destroy the gloss. Un- 
der no other circumstances dilute or add anything to 

Liquid Enamel 

Doing the work yourself is easy 
with our plain instructions 

and loose particles of sand, lime or cement re- 
wire brush. Apply with a four or five-inch paint 

The surface to be enameled should be dry, clean and free 
from grease and dirt, and samlpapered smoothly. To re- 
move grease and stains, use turpentine or benzine. Be 
sure to stir the paint thoroughly. Cut out the entire top 
of can and stir with a flat paddle until the paint is smooth, 
and of an even consistency. Enamel, if left exposed, is 
liable to become heavy and work hard. This can be rem- 
edied by the addition of a little turpentine. Too much 
turpentine will destroy the gloss. 
Where a very fine finish is desired, the under coat should be lightly sandpapered 

with a fine sandpaper before applying the finishing coat. 

Where White, Ivory and similar light shades in liquid enamel are used on new 

surface, or on a surface that has been previously painted with some darker shade, the 

best results can be obtained by first applying one or two coats of our No. lO 1 ^ Inside 

Flat White Coverall House Paint. 

Bath Tub Enamel 

Stir thoroughly. Have the surface to be coated clean, smooth, DRY, and free from 
dust. Apply evenly and freely — brushing out very thoroughly. 

Use an Oval Varnish Brush if possible. One coat will usually be sufficient. If a 
higher finish is desired apply two coats, allowing first coat to dry hard before apply- 
ing the second coat. 

For First Coat Work add at least 1 per cent] of turpentine to the Enamel. 

If too heavy, thin only with turpentine. 

Radiator Enamels 

Radiator should be painted with one coat of flat paint (free from oil) and one or 
two coats of Enamel. Stir Enamel thoroughly and apply with an ordinary flat bristle 
varnish brush. If it thickens, add a little turpentine — too much will sill the lustre. 
Be sure to remove all oil or grease from surface of radiator before applying or Enamel 
will peel off. Do not flow it on too heavily — two thin coats are far better than one 
thick coat. One gallon will cover about two hundred and fifty square feet of surface. 

How to Care for Brushes 

After you have finished using a brush, wash it out carefully with benzine. To 
keep a paint brush from getting hard put it in lard and when ready to use, wash 
it out with turpentine or soap and water. In this way you can keep a brush in good 
condition for several years. ... , , 

Whitewash and Kalsomine Brushes should be thoroughly washed m water and hung 
up to dry, otherwise the lime and dampness will rot the bristles in a very short time.

Many people still believe that if they purchase white lead 
and mix it themselves with linseed oil they are then getting 
the very best white paint for exterior painting. Then, for 
colors they simply add colors ground in oil to secure the 
(lcsncd shade. It is true that zinc oxide combined with white 
Wita a better paint, as the zinc adds strength and gloss 
to the paint film, and thus greatly increases its weather- 

1 ' e it t is g an ,a abso e h;te fact, however, that the greatest paint 
chemists, as well as the most reliable paint manufacturers, 
have found through exhaustive tests that by adding proper 
pigments to the lead and linseed oil they can obtain greater 
aurability and far better covering capacity But, to get these 
results, these ingredients must be very finely ground and 
thoroughly mixed by powerful machinery. 

Then, too, in buying paint ingredients m the open market 
von have no assurance that you are getting the pure article. 
But when you buy your paint from us, we protect you against 
fraudulent* adulterations and substitutions, for we test, m 
our extensive laboratory, everything that goes into the making 
of our paints. _ . . . 

With our powerful and latest improved paint machinery, we 
not only make better paint than it is possible to make by N _ w t E t» SE yJ

Our paint chemist accepts sub- 
limed white lead because of its 
superiority. In tests, it has 
shown that it will not become 
affected by hydrogen sulphide 
gas, which is plentiful in smoke, 
sewer gas, and in decaying 
animal or vegetable matter. It has 
no chemical action on the oil, and 
therefore does not shorten the life 
of the paint. The fineness of sub- 
limed white lead enables it to be 
mixed more easily and prevents 
caking in cans. It is non-poison- 

He accepts XX New Jersey zinc 
oxide because it is the best known 
material that will perform its 
functions. It is free from im- 
purity, is not poisonous, and builds 
up life of the paint. 

He accepts linseed oil because it 
forms a skin which holds the pig- 
ments together, thus assuring a 
smooth and lasting surface. Also, 
the pure material is better able to 
perform its functions than any 


He rejects corroded white lead 
because it will not perform the 
duties that are dependent upon it. 
It will turn black when it comes 
in contact with hydrogen sulphide 
gas. It acts upon the oil, which is 
the life of the paint, thereby de- 
stroying the full value of the 
paint. Because of the acid in cor- 
roded white lead, it has an effect 
upon the tinting 'colors, causing 
them to change. Lastly, it is of a 
poisonous nature. 

He rejects other brands of zinc 
oxide because of their impurities. 
They have not been perfected as 
yet. They are poisonous, and tend 
to take away the life and hiding 
capacity of paint. 

He rejects adulterated oils or 
gloss oils because they contain 
resinous compounds. They become 
affected by heat, do not hold the 
pigments together, and lessen the 
covering eapa'city. 

We recommend our ready-mixed paint to you because it is the best 
for the purpose. We are very careful about what we recommend be- 
cause of our broad guarantee, which insures "Satisfaction to you." 
Why take chances on paint, varnish, or any material that is in a sealed 
can and that you know nothing about, when we make you so broad a 
guarantee which you know means just what it says? The reason we 
can sell such good paint at prices so extremely low is that in buying 
paint from us you are getting the paint direct from the factoiy to you, 
with only a very small profit added— much less than almost any one 
else could do business on. Therefore it must be plain that when we 
sell you a paint at 98c it would usually cost you about $1.50 or more. 









You wish your house to appear at its best, and to favorably 
impress everyone — its appearance to be attractive and pleasing. 

It is, therefore, wise for you to select paint that will produce 
this effect — with shades that are attractive — so that at first sight 
the house may win the admiration of the passerby — tints that har- 
monize and prove to be more pleasing the longer the house and 
surroundings are studied — colors that will wear well for several 

As your house is attractive and pleasing, so the real monetary 
value is increased. Add to the value of your house, as well as its 
beauty, by painting with Coverall House Paint. 

The value of a building is thus often increased out of all pro- 
portion to the amount spent for paint and labor. Did you ever 
notice how hard it is to find a buyer for a house that is in need of 
a coat of paint? 

It costs but little to 
paint a building with two 
coats of Coverall Paint- 
so little that you will be 
surprised. See what a 
small amount of money is 
required to paint the 
houses shown on the back 
cover of this book. 

It is the surface cover- 
ing qualities, as well as 
the great durability of 
Coverall House Paint, that 
makes it so desirable, and 
such a big seller with us. 

The low price at which 
we are able to furnish this 
high class paint makes it 
possible for everyone to 
keep his house looking 


Thus your building 
painted with Coverall is 
thoroughly protected 
against decay. Coverall is 
the best protection you 
can put on your property. 

The name, Montgomery Ward & Company, on a sealed can is 
everywhere an accepted guarantee of quality. 

Good paint costs nothing, because it saves more than it costs. 

An unpainted building, or one painted with inferior paint that 
fades, chalks or peels off, does not speak well for the owner. If he 
can afford to paint, and don't know that it will pay him, it is our 
duty to show him that money so spent is 
a very profitable investment. 

Paint investment is the greatest property 
insurance on the farm— greater than fire or 
tornado insurance. 

Paint is obtainable in three forms— dry 
pigment, paste colors, and prepared or 
ready mixed paint. All paint was formerly 
prepared by the painter, who would tedi- 
ously grind the dry pigment in oil, then 
laboriously mix that product with more oil, 
then add turpentine and dryers. 

At a later date painters found it more 
profitable, and much more satisfactory, to 
allow the manufacturer to grind this dry 
pigment in oil by machinery. Some of the 
painters in those days fought hard against 
what they termed the "new fangled idea;" 
but who would now think of spending hours 
in grinding dry pigment in oil to produce a 
lew gallons of paint?

Today the same ideas prevail against scientifically machine-made 
paint — commonly called ready-mixed paint. 

If you have ever tried to mix paints, you know that you can 
make better paint by stirring the ingredients for a half hour than 
for only fifteen minutes — and better still, if stirred for an hour. 
But a paint machine will, in only a few minutes, mix many times 
the amount of paint more efficiently than a man working a whole 
day on a few gallons. Then, hand-mixed paints cannot be made to 
the exact tint, because tinting colors vary in strength. With pre- 
pared paints it is possible to have exact uniformity. 

Not only is the composition of paint an important matter — the 
method is of equal importance. 

For illustration: If we mix together zinc oxide, white lead, and 
barytes, adding the zinc to the lead and the barytes, a uniform 
mixture will not result. But if the lead and barytes are added to 
the zinc, perfect results are obtained. Then, it is a serious matter 

as to the quality of the 
dryer — the quantity to be 
used varies with the qual- 

An extensive laboratory, 
under the charge of ex- 
perts, is necessary for per- 
fect results. 

Long experience has 
taught us just what in- 
gredients produce the best 
and most economical paint. 
Hand-mixed paint is hu- 
man labor with just good 
luek added, if anywhere 
near a fair paint mixture 

For manufacturing pre- 
pared paint we have the 
most modern machinery, 
which does the work bet- 
ter and at a much lower 
cost. Furthermore, the 
work is directed by skilled 
paint chemists, so that, 
with a given formula, ex- 
actly the same result is 
obtained each time. 

When a formula is 
proven by test and experi- 
ence to be superior, it is 
very important that it be duplicated exactly. The expert paint 
manufacturer only can accomplish such duplication. 

By the adoption of machinery we have better and longer wearing 
paint at less cost, so much less cost that our guaranteed paint is 
within the reach of people of modest means. Today an unpainted 
building is a reproach to the owner. 

One of our power mixers will, in about ten minutes, thoroughly 
mix a thousand gallons of white liquid paint 
with lamp-black, and produce a uniform 
gray tint. To obtain by hand a uniform 
tint in one gallon of these materials would 
take hours of constant stirring. The cost 
of hand labor ranges from 15c to 40c per 

A great point in favor of the paint in 
ready-mixed form is that the materials 
would be run through the mill together and 
would undoubtedly be more uniform than if 
the small consumer prepared his own mix- 
ture, while also in the latter case there 
would be greater liability to poor results, 
due to excess of Japan. 

Machine-made paint is ground so fine and 
so thoroughly that hand-prepared paint is 
no comparison. 

Why then mix the paint yourself? You 
tannot mix it to the proper spreading con- 
sistency. You know exactly what you are 
getting when you buy guaranteed paint 
made by Montgomery Ward & Co.

Four Points to Consider in Selecting Paints 

The cost of any article involves other facts than its 
bare price. Paint is no exception to this general rule. 
In selecting paint there are four distinct points to be 
considered : 

1st. The Cost per Gallon. 

The fact that another paint is being offered you at, say double 
our price, does not mean it has double value. The difference in 
price is due to the fact that our paint goes to you direct from the 
factory, with but one small profit added to the very first cost. 

2d. The Quantity Required to Cover a Given Surface. 

There we are back to the point covered by the paragraph in first 
column under the heading, "Covering Capacity Guaranteed." Read 
it very carefully. 

3d. Its Durability.

furniture. It dries with 
a fine, smooth gloss. 
You will be pleased with 
it. Experience is not nec- 
essary to apply Coverall 
Paint. It is ready mixed, 
being thoroughly ground, 
so that it spreads very 
easily. By old methods it 
was necessary to have the 
experience of an expert 
painter to prepare the 
paint to proper consist- 
ency; but Coverall is so 
carefully prepared that 
any one following the 
simple directions on each 
can will do a first-class 
job of painting. Coverall 
is always ready to be ap- 
plied. You can do your 
own painting in spare 
time, thus saving the cost 
of labor. 


When you buy your 
paint, look to the covering 
qualities also. Don't buy 
simply by the gallon; buy 
by the square feet to the 

Why does a gallon of Coverall cover such a large area as 250 
to 350 square feet to the gallon? Now you are getting down to 
the secret. Coverall, like all our paints, is made in our own 
factory, which is, in reality, a great big laboratory under the 
constant direction of expert paint chemists. The ingredients 
that go into our paints are crushed and ground between power- 
ful mill stones to minute particles — 
ground in oil, so that they are more than 
coated with oil. It's the .proper combina- 
tion of a proven formula that determines 
the covering qualities. 

But other necessary qualities of a good 
paint are not overlooked or sacrificed to 
secure lower cost or greater covering ca- 
pacity. Coverall possesses that brilliant 
luster that attracts the attention of every- 
one — then the color is uniform. 

Coverall is a paint made for SERVICE 
— the very best, we believe, that can be 
made. Each can is guaranteed to be ex- 
actly as represented. Should Coverall paint 
fail to cover 250 to 350 square feet, two 
full coats per gallon — should this paint 
crack, blister or peel off — or should it fail 
in any way to give you the service you ex- 
pect of it, we will furnish new paint free.

G. It Is our desire to make trading with us so easy, 
so profitable, ami so satisfactory, that you will bo 
pleased not only with the goods received, but also with 
our service and our entire method of dealing. 


Not just how long will 
it last, but how long will 
it look well. If the paint 
wears well, but fades, you 
will have to repaint in a 
short time, or be ashamed 
of the appearance of the 
building. It means a de- 
preciation in the value of 
your property as well. 
Appearance goes a long 
way witli most people. 

4th. Will It Wear? 

In other words, will it 
wear down smoothly, so 
that a good surface will be 
left for another coat, after 
a nuriiber of years? If 
the paint wears up rough, 
the cost to smooth down 
when repainting time 
comes will be 'considerable. 

Remember: Coverall 
House Paint is not a 
cheap composition paint, 
even though the price is 
low. We give you the ad- 
vantage of a low cost se- 
cure d by the use of 
thoroughly modern ma- 
chinery and selling meth- 
ods. There is no chance for 

1 variation in the quality or 

color of Coverall House Paint. We have facilities that enable us to 
furnish you with the best quality at a price lower than you can 
possibly' prepare the paint yourself. Furthermore, you have the 
protection of our expert paint chemist, who is constantly on 
the job to see that no ingredient enters into the making of any 
paint upon which we permit our label to appear. 

In selecting colors for your house, you 
should take special care to choose such 
shades as will harmonize with your neigh- 
bors' buildings, and yet not be the same 
color. Remember, too, that light shades 
lend prominence to a building. If there 
are many trees and shrubbery that tend 
to hide the house, the lighter colors will 
make it stand out more clearly. Then, too, 
you should consider the style of architec- 
ture of your house and the surroundings. 
If your home is a cottage, the lighter 
shades are always best; but if you have a 
large and stately residence it is best to use 
the medium or darker shades. When us- 
ing more than one color for the body, do 
not apply a darker color above a lighter 
one. A dark color always creates the im- 
pression of something strong and solid, 
hence it should be placed below a lighter

The Best Guaranteed 
Barn Paint 

Also Well Adapted for Use 

on Fences, Sheds, Roofs, 

and Other Purposes 

Our price is as low as really 
good, reliable barn paint can be 
sold for. The real economy in 
barn painting is not in buying 
cheap paint, but in buying good 
paint at reasonable prices. 
Bear in mind that it costs ex- 
actly as much to apply cheap 
paint as it does good paint, 
and the cost of application rep- 
resents fully two-thirds of 
your total painting expense. 

In buying paint, the big point then to consider is, not the initial 'cost 
per gallon, but rather the 'covering capacity of each gallon, the 
wearing qualities, and what will be the condition of the surface 
when ready for repainting. In other words, you should buy paint 
service rather than paint material. 

A gallon of cheap paint will cover approximately 200 square feet, 
2 coats. Our Coverall Barn Paint will cover 300 square feet, 2 
coats, under fair conditions. This difference in covering capacity is 
the result of pure materials, fine grinding and thorough mixing. 

Our Low Price Does Not Mean An Inferior Paint 

No one can offer for the price a better barn paint than Coverall. 
No one can offer you a reliable barn paint for less money. 

The covering capacity, united with its enduring and preserving 
qualities, makes it one of the best paints it is possible to produce 
for the purpose, likewise the most economical. Protect your barns, 
outbuildings, fences and roofs against decay at 
a low expense. Use it on metal or shingle 
roofs, gutters, tanks, drain pipes, cornices, and 
windmills. One gallon will cover approximately 
300 square feet, two coats. When one coat only 
is applied, use Coverall Barn Paint just as it 
comes in the can. For a two-coat job on a new 
building or one in much need of paint, add for 
the first coat from a quart to a half gallon Raw

Do You Want the Very Best? 

You tean make sure of getting the best if you buy a brand of 
known quality, a brand that is pure paint all the way through. 
You are sure of both quality and low cost, and doubly sure of the 
lasting qualities, if you buy paint that is backed by the broad 
guarantee of Montgomery Ward & Co. 

The best is always the cheapest; especially is this true when it 
comes to paint. The cost of spreading cheap paint is no less than 
applying Tower Brand. But if you have to repaint your building 
three times during the life of one coat of Tower Brand on another 
building, how much do you save by purchasing cheap paint? On 
the cost of paint alone you have saved nothing — on labor you have 
lost much. 

Tower Brand Paint is unexcelled in service, in beauty of finish, 
and in covering capacity — three prime requisites of a good paint. 

Service — that is what Tower Brand will give you. It will stay 
on your building for years before it shows wear, and when new 
painting is necessary the surface will be as good as when the paint 
was first applied. 

Poor paint will, in a few months, begin to fade, chip, peel, blister, 
or crack. Your building is then an eyesore to the community; 
your work will be lost; you will have to go to the expense of an- 
other coat of paint — but even then you cannot get the very best 
results with the best paint, because the poor paint has left the 
surface rough. Had a good paint like Tower Brand been used, the 
finish on your building would be a thing of beauty for several years. 

Tower Brand 100 per cent 
Pure Paint 

Every gallon of Tower Brand is absolutely 100 per cent pure and 
uniform, and of the very highest grade that can be produced. If a 
better paint could be made, we would make it. We make our own 
paint, using the latest and most approved machinery. We have our 
own laboratory, where skilled chemists are constantly at work 
keeping up our high standard of quality. 

We have complete confidence in Tower Brand Paint, because 
everything in the paint is pure. We add no "fillers" of any kind — 
the only things that go into Tower Brand are the ingredients actu- 
ally needed to make a perfect paint. 

Just think what it is worth to you to know that you are getting 
the best. That is the confidence you can enjoy when buying of 
Montgomery Ward & Co. 

When you buy a gallon of Tower Brand, you are getting a full 
U. S. gallon of 100 per cent pure paint — paint all the way through. 
The formula is all printed on the label of every can, and the con- 
tents subject to inspection. We dare not misrepresent, nor do we 
wish to do so. 

Beyond all doubt, Tower Brand is the biggest paint value offered 
today. It is endorsed by thousands upon thousands of users. 

Tower Brand is made under a formula that eliminates paint 
faults — a formula which science and the test of time have proven 
to be correct. Ea'ch ingredient is chosen to perform a definite func- 
tion. Sublimed White Lead and Zinc Oxide (the pigments in Tower 
Brand Paint) are pure products — that is, minute particles collected 

from the fumes of melted ore. We use sublimed white lead because 
its physical structure makes it the most staple of all white leads. 
It is very opaque, is uniform in composition, extremely fine in 
texture, and has no destructive effect on the paint vehicle. It dif- 
fers from ordinary white lead— being non-poisonous— and resists 
the blackening action of the sulphur compound (contained in sewer 
gases and fuel gases) to a much greater degree. Like all other 
white leads, however, it in itself does not possess all the physical 
properties necessary for paint requirements. When combined and 
finely ground in equal parts with zinc oxide, all deficiencies are 
overcome. The value of the ono is enhanced by the addition of 
the other. 

Then the zinc oxide, combined with white lead in the proper pro- 
portions, adds strength and gloss to the paint film, and greatly 
increases its weather-resisting qualities. 

A prominent manufacturer of white lead, when asked if he would 
use straight lead or a combination on his own house, replied that 
he would add a percentage of zinc, but would not advertise the fact. 
This manufacturer's experiences taught him that two white pig- 
ments in proper combination are better than one alone. 

The linseed oil is the life of the paint, but only pure oil is effi- 
cient. The pure gum turpentine makes Tower Brand Paint spread 
easily, and the Japan dryer makes it dry quickly and evenly. 

All materials used in making Tower Brand Paint are carefully 
selected and tested by skilled experts. Each material must test 
out 100 per cent pure. 

This great care is taken for your protection.

Use our Shingle Stain on your shingle roofs, sides of buildings, 
bungalows, etc. Not only will it greatly improve their appearance, 
but it will protect them from the destructive action of the weather. 
Our stain is a combination of creosote oil and the best wood preserva- 
tives known. It penetrates the wood — prevents decay and produces 
that soft, mottled finish now so much in demand. Shingle Stain is 
easily applied. Be sure that the shingles are clean and dry. Remem- 
ber that the life of the stain depends upon the depth to which it 
penetrates the wood. 

One gallon will cover 100 square feet, two coats, when applied with 
a brush. .Two and one-half gallons will cover 1,000 shingles two-thirds 
of their length if dipped. 

An Important Point to Remember. Too much stress cannot be laid 
on the necessity of preserving your shingles, and thus adding years to 
the life of your roof. With the price of cedar as high as it is today, 
new shingles will cost you many times more than the stain necessary 
to protect them. Shingle stain is really, then, an investment and not 
an expense. Made in eight colors. See colors below.

Our Wood Preservative Will Do 
It. The Cost is Small 

"When you figure on building a 
fence, it is a wire fence you de- 
cide upon. Then you want gal- 
vanized wire so it will last for 
years, but how about the posts? 
A fence can be no better than 
the posts that support it. When 
the posts decay and break off, 
the service of the fence is gone, 
at least until new posts are set 
and the fence rebuilt, meaning 
added expense. 

Consider, too, the possible 
losses that may, in the meantime, 
occur by stock breaking through 
into the grain field, or straying 
away and the loss in time and 
labor getting them back. 

Use Wood Preservative on 
your fence posts, it will preserve 
them against decay for many 
years. The cost is small and the 
saving is great. Fence posts are 
increasing in value, as timber be- 
comes more scarce. The cost for 
Wood Preservative is only from 3 cents to 5 cents per 
post. It doubles the life of posts and in the saving of 
labor alone you are well repaid. 

To treat fence posts or any other timber, first remove 
all bark, then apply Wood Preservative with a brush- 
two or three coats. To obtain the best results, how- 
ever, apply hot, for it then penetrates the wood more 
readily and evaporates the moisture more effectually. 
In the winter especially, we recommend that Wood Pre- 
servative be heated in an iron vessel to about 150 or 200 
degrees. The very best results are obtained by dipping 
the timber in the hot oil, but if this is not practicable, 
apply with an ordinary wire-bound paint brush. The 
timber to be treated should be dry. The second coat 
should not be applied until the first "coat is dry. Special 
care should be taken to use plenty of Wood Preserva- 
tive on the ends of the posts. 

Wood Preservative 


Used also for preserving Silos, Planking, Sills, Joists, 
Tanks — in fact any wood subject to decay or the

"Wood Preservative" is a 
Refined Creosote Oil 

Wood Preservative is nothing 
more nor less than Refined Creo- 
sote Oil. This oil has been the 
acknowledged wood preservative 
from time unknown. The fact 
that railroads and steamship 
companies always have and still 
use it, to preserve and protect 
against decay, such property as 
ties, water tanks, bridges, trestles, 
wharfs, docks, boats and barges' 
is evidence conclusive of its un- 
questioned merit. Notwithstand- 
ing the many advertised, fancy- 
named preservatives now being 
placed before the public, Creo- 
sote Oil still maintains its superi- 
ority. There is no oil or com- 
bination of oils that will pene- 
trate and impart to the wood, 
that lasting preserving quality 
as will Creosote Oil. Use it on 
plank walks, sills, joists, wooden 
fences, posts, tanks, wind mills 
and silos, and it will not only 
give you the best results, but it is also less expensive. 
Wood Preservative may also be used on timbers for 
any purpose ; in fact, for any woodwork above or below 
ground or water, that is subject to decay or insects. 
Ropes, canvas and nets treated with Wood Preserva- 
tive become water-proof and more durable, yet remain 
soft and pliable in all seasons. Paint the inside of corn- 
cribs and granaries with Wood Preservative and grain 
therein will not be damaged by the corn weevil. 

Being a strong, but harmless, disinfectant, it is used 
for spraying, in hog pens and barns ; it helps to prevent 
contagion and the spreading of disease. Spray the 
chicken house with this oil, and lice or mites cannot 
exist. Mice, rats, or ants will not attack or damage 
woodwork painted with our wood preservative. 
Splendid for so many uses, you should keep a supply 
on hand all the time.

Trowel Roof Cement

sets hard and dries by evaporation, eventually loosening and Stops Leaks and Cracks 

dropping out. Trowel Cement is tOUgh, but exceedingly elastic. For Old Rools— For New Roofs— Apply With a Trowel 

It contracts and expands, is not affected by heat or cold, and will last as long as the surface on which it is used. 
Where there is a small leak, plug up the hole the same as you would with putty, smoothing down the edge with 

trowel or putty knife. In case of very large 
hole, put on patch of tin composition or sheet 
iron, nail the edges down and cover with 
cement to the thickness of about % inch. 
Where roof is in general bad condition, 
spread over a coating of cement evenly about 
Ys inch thick, working out the edges 
smoothly. In black only.

Elastic Rubber Roof Paint 

One of the strongest 
features of this paint is 
shown in the repairing of 
leaky roofs. A leak can 
be permanently stopped 
by first painting the sur- 
face over the leak, then 
laying on a piece of mus- 
lin, and finally coating the 
muslin with this paint. You then have a patch that is 
absolutely water-proof, and one that will last indefinitely. 
This paint comes to you all ready to apply. Does not 
need to be thinned. Before applying this paint, be 
sure to thoroughly sweep or scrape the surface to be 
painted. One gallon will cover about 250 square feet, 
one coat. 

For Felt or Composition Rools, Metal Roofs and Muslin Roofs. For Iron Fences, 
Steel Bridges, Wind Mills and Water Tanks 

This paint will stand expansion and contraction caused by 
weather changes, without cracking or peeling. It will not run in 
the hottest weather, or crack in the coldest. "ELASTIC RUBBER 
ROOF PAINT" gives a bright, glossy finish that is absolutely sun- 
proof, and water-proof, elastic and durable. 

Many paints have been prepared and put on the market for 
which these qualities have been claimed. Few of them, however, 
have lived up to their promises. Elastic Rubber Roof Paint has 
been repeatedly tested under the severest, most exacting condi- 
tions. In every case it has given entire satisfaction. Don't take 
any chances witli paint you know nothing about. Use Montgomery 
Ward & Co.'s Rubber Roof Paint and get satisfaction under an 
absolute guarantee. Our brush 3B702 or 3B705 will be found ex- 
cellent for applying this paint.

dition. It is elastic and durable. Has good body. Will be found a most satisfactory 
coating for the purpose intended. It is ready for use, and is easily applied. One gal- 
lon will 'cover from 200 to 250 square feet of surface, one coat.

pretty effects and are particularly desirable for residences.

Easy to apply. Never wears out. Does not rub off on to the 
clothes. An oil finish, very artistic and durable. Being waterproof, 
it is readily 'cleaned with soap and water.

velvety wall covering. Thoroughly protects and covers the wall. 
The very best flat finish for interior work on walls, woodwork, 
plaster board or metal ceilings, where a smooth, soft, dull, and 
artistic finish is desired. As it may be washed repeatedly without 
injury to the finish, it is thoroughly sanitary. 

An endless number of artistic combinations may be secured by 
the judicious use of the various tints shown on opposite page. 
Then, too, by the application of the proper stenciling, wonderful 
results may be obtained. (See Page 25 for Stencils.) 

You can do all this work yourself; you would enjoy it. And con- 
sider the satisfaction in feeling that it is your own work. Full 
directions on each can. It is ready to use right out of the can. 
When used on smooth plastered walls, one gallon will cover from 
200 to 250 square feet, two coats. Before using on new walls, or

A Durable Exterior Coating for Concrete, 
Brick, Stucco, and Masonry. 

See Colors on Opposite page. 

This specially prepared Liquid Cement Coating is in no sense an 
ordinary paint. It is alkali-proof, and made especially for damp- 
proofing and decorating surfaces above described, which, on account 
of their caustic and alkaline nature, cannot be treated with an 
ordinary oil paint. 

Concrete and Cement Coating produces a pleasing, uniform, flat, 
stone-like finish that penetrates and seals the pores, making the 
surface damp-proof and weather-proof. It prevents water-spotting 
of the walls, and preserves them from disintegration due to the 
absorption of moisture. For concrete, brick, or stucco work on 
houses, public buildings, Concrete bridges, etc., or for inside finish 
on plaster walls, basements, floors, and all damp surfaces this paint 
has no equal. 

Apply this paint direct to the surface, except in cases of extreme 
dampness or moisture, in which case first apply one coat of our 
Seal-Tite as described on Page 6. 

Concrete and Cement Coating is applied with a brush, the same 
as an ordinary paint. On the average concrete or brick surface one 
gallon will 'cover about 100 square feet, two coats.

An Inexpensive, Sanitary Wall Finish 

It Gives Your Walls An 
Elegance and Character 
You Cannot Get with 
Any Other Similar Finish 




aw mini nil nnnuivm 

Pur-e-tone imparts a finish which is smooth and warm, 
rich and velvety. 

It will not rub off, flake, powder, peel, or blister. It 
is scientifically prepared and positively sanitary. 

Any one can apply this wall finish. It is easily and 
quickly dissolved in hot water, requiring no stirring 
after it is once mixed. Pur-e-tone is so finely ground 
that it will remain in good condition without settling, 
and it will cover more surface than other similar goods 
made for the same purpose. It not only goes farther ; it 
looks better, works easier, and lasts longer than other 
materials sold for the same purpose. 

Mix with boiling water to a thick, smooth paste, al- 
lowing fifteen or twenty minutes for the material to 
become thoroughly dissolved. Thin to a proper con- 
sistency for the work for which it is to be used by adding 
cold water. Allow the mixture to stand until cold. For 
hard-finished walls mix to the thickness of a good mixed 
paint. If the walls are rough and porous more water 
should be added than for smooth and perfect walls. 
Apply with regular kalsomine brush. Our 3B570 and 
3B599 are very satisfactory. One 24-cent package will 
kalsomine an ordinary room. 

NOTE — Old walls previously kalsomined should be 
washed clean before applying a new coat. New walls 
and old walls that have not been previously sized should 
receive a coat of our Fresco Wall Size (3B8736), listed on 
Page 6, before applying the kalsomine. State color 
wanted. White and ten shades shown on opposite page.

See Colors on Opposite Page 

Fresco colors are used in connection with our kalso- 
mine shades for borders, stenciling, or where a very deep 
color is desired. It is easy to prepare and easy to put on. 

Fresco colors are mixed the same as kalsomine, as 
above described, except after adding the hot water allow 
the mixture to stand twenty-five minutes to become 
thoroughly dissolved, after which thin with cold water 
to the proper consistency, provided it is for immediate 
use. If not for immediate use, simply pour the cold 
water on the mixture and stir when ready to use. Vary 
the amount of water according to the surface to be 
covered. New walls and old walls that have not been 
previously sized should first receive a coat of our Fresco 
Wall Size (3B8736) listed on page 6.

At a very small cost you can finish new work or re- 
finish old floors, woodwork, or furniture to imitate Oak, 
Cherry, Walnut, Mahogany, or Eosewood. Surprising 
effects can thus be produced, and Co-Var-Finish is so 
easy to apply that anybody can do the work. 

See inside front cover page for demonstration of this 
wonderful finish. If you wish to change the finish from 
a darker to a lighter shade, apply first a coat of No. 
I88V2 Ground Color, then, after that is dry, apply the 
desired color. Be sure to state color you wish.

In order to withstand the 
severe action of mud and fre- 
quent washing, our Carriage and 
Automobile Paint is made from 
the best grade coach colors, 
finely ground in high quality 
varnishes. For beauty of finish, 
and for durability, it is unex- 
celled. As a rule, one coat is suf-

furniture, or on any similar article requiring a bright gloss finish. 
The results will be gratifying. Be sure that the surface to be 
painted is perfectly clean, free from grease, and smoothly sand- 
papered before beginning. Always use a clean brush.

Hard-Drying Porch Paint SJSSS'.S 

A Special Paint for outdoor 
use. Will not quickly show ef- 
fects of the hardest wear or the 
severest weather. 

Not only will this paint with- 
stand the wear and tear of con- 
stant use, but it will resist the 
action of the wind, rain, and 
weather. Montgomery Ward & 
Co.'s Porch Floor Paint is the 
best and longest-lived floor paint 
for outside use that can be made. We have subjected 
this paint to a hundred of the most trying tests that 
could possibly be devised. We have done this because 
we realize that no other painted surface is given the 
bruising, gruelling wear and tear that the porch or steps 
receive. There is not another Porch Floor Paint that has 
wearing qualities that compare with this. 

If there is any one thing about a house that needs repainting 
more than any other it is the porches and steps. Send a trial 
order for a little of this paint and you will have no other. One 
gallon will cover 300 square feet two coats. '

Wagon and Implement Paint 

See colors on opposite page 

Make your wagon look like 
new. A quart of this superior 
paint will do it, and the cost is 
only 39c. When the cost is so 
small and you can do the work 
yourself, why allow your wagon 
or any implement to "wear 
out?" Rust and decay are as 
destructive as fire. 

Our Wagon and Implement 
Paint offers a wonderful resist- 
ance to wear and hard usage. Being made of the best 
non-fading colors, it is guaranteed to give vou absolute 
satisfaction. It is prepared ready to apply.* Simply see 
that the surface to be painted is clean, then apply our 
Wagon and Implement Paint with a 2-inch or a 2%-inch 
varnish brush. 3B667 or 3B668 brushes are" well 
adapted for this work. State color wanted. For colors

Makes Old Floors Look Like New 

See colors on opposite page 

The ideal preparation for kitchen, 
pantry, bedrooms and all interior 
floors. Gives a hard, brilliant, gloss 
finish. Will not show heel marks or 

We do not tell you our Floor 
Paint is good for painting both in- 
side and outside floors. 

The requirements of a paint for 
outside floors and for inside are en- 
tirely different. So are the conditions to which they are 
subjected. How then can the same paint be used satis- 
factorily for both ? 

_ Ordinary Floor Paints must dry over night. In addi- 
tion, Floor Paint must be able to stand constant wash- 
ing and scrubbing. To secure these results, a class of 
driers and varnishes must be used that will stand ex- 
posure to elements. . Lead and oil, as commonly mixed 
by hand, do not prove satisfactory for this work. 

Our Inside Floor Paints combine the most durable and 
the best wear-resisting pigments known. These are 
ground in tough, elastic oils, which make a paint that 
will not readily sIioav bruises, scratches, or heel marks. 
It dries hard in a short time, with a brilliant gloss, and 
can be washed and scrubbed without injury. 

This is just the paint you want for your kitchen floor. 
It is the only paint you can afford to buy, if you want 
the best. It is the most durable and the most economical 
Floor Paint on the market today. Cheaper paints may 
look well for a time, but after a few months your floor 
begins to scar and becomes unsightly. Use our Guaran- 
teed Floor Paint and be sure of satisfactory service. One 
gallon will cover 250 square feet with two coats. 

We recommend our brush 3B553 for this work.

Rubberset Brushes need no Introduction. Their superior quality has won for them 
a world-wide reputation. The bristles are vulcanized in rubber — firmly embedded — 
impossible to come out. Rubberset Brushes never shed bristles. It is not necessary to 
water-soak them before using. They are not affected by turpentine, benzine, alcohol, or 
water. They have successfully passed every test, and have proven their value by actual 
work in the hands of master painters. 

Rubberset Brushes are the best brushes that can be made. Every brush is fully guar- 
anteed against any defect in materials, workmanship, or construction.

Some Facts About the Care of Brushes 

First-class brushes can be ruined or lose half their value if they are not properly 
cared for Neva allow any brush to stand on the end of the bristles 

I'amt brushes in daily use should be suspended in raw Unseed oil after using. Before 
using again, brash out the oil on a board 

Varnish brushes In daily use should be suspended in the varnish after using 

When through with, a brush, either paint or varnish, wash out thoroughly in turpen- 
tine; rinse carefully In warm soapsuds, after which hang them in a cool, dry, place, 
with the handle up. 

Never use a varnish brush for any other purpose than varnishing. Never varnish 
with a brush that has been used in paint, as it will not give good results.

Very Pleasing Effects May be Accomplished 

with Stencils and It's Very Interesting. 

Yoti can do it Yourself 


Popular and artistic Stencil Designs, for 
. ' painting and decorating. Walls and ceilings 
finished with our Flat Wall Finish, or Pur-E- 
Tone Hot Water Kalsoraine and Fresco Colors, 
are particularly well adapted for stenciling. 
To get the most artistic effect in stenciling, 
the colors must blend perfectly. This you 
can accomplish easily. Simply take some of 
the same paint or kalsomine used on the 
walls, and add a few drops of brown at a 
time, being careful not to get it too dark. If 
too dark there will be too much contrast to 
be artistic. If your wall color is a gray use 
for stenciling the same material, adding a 
little black for a darker shade, or a little 
white for a lighter shade. 

These stencils are made from heavy oiled 
paper, and are easily used for making borders, 
binders, and panel work, on painted, kal- 
somined or frescoed walls and ceilings. Also 
are used on plain or ingrain wall papers, por- 
tieres, curtains, table covers, etc. Weight, 
3 to 10 ounces. 

When ordering Stencils, mention Catalogue

A Complete Assortment o! Wood Graining Tools 

It Is not necessary that you have any experience in order to obtain 
the beautiful effects that you have so often desired. At a very small 
expense you can grain the doors and the woodwork artistically in any 
room. If you have grown tired of the plain painted or varnished effect, 
try graining the woodwerk and change the entire effect of the apartment. 

English Blued Steel

3B748— In 1 2 assorted s^zes. Packed in tin compartment case. Weight, 

12 oz. Per set 70o 

3B749 — English Steel Graining Comb. Width, 3 in. For producing 
fine grains of woods. Shipping weight, 2 oz. Each 11c 



You may become a 

first-class grainer by 
using our patent rubber grain- 
ing rolls. The illustration 
shows the manner in which the 
rolls are manipulated. There 
are three rolls, 5% in. long 
and 1% in. In diameter. The 
one which is corrugated can be 
used to imitate any known 
grain of wood — the other is 
used to reproduce growth of 
quarter sawed oak; the third 
takes the place of the graining 
combs. This will be found very advantageous in graining. The color, 
instead of being pushed forward and accumulated in the running points 
as is frequently the case in other grainers, is allowed to pass between 
the teeth. With the three rolls one will be prepared to do any kind of 
oak, ash, chestnut, etc.. graining without having to use any other tools. 
All that is required is to lay your color on the surface you wish to 
grain, brushing it out well, then slide the graining roll down the surface 
you are graining, turning it slowly. Shipping weight, 15 oz. 
Per Set ggg 


3B752— The Magic Handle Grainer. For 
graining floors, wainscoting, etc. No 
experience necessary. You rock the roller 
at the same lime yon slide it along. Every 
change or movement of the hand makes 
a different grain, giving a great variety 
of work and grains of wood. You can 
change the effect by turning the roller 
over. Shipping weight, 6 oz.

The New Home Grainer,68c 

3R7£ft 0ne steel Graining Comb and two Rub-

done easily if the proper tools are handy, and we 
think that this set is the thing wanted. Two rubber 
corrugated graining rollers, and a steel graining comb. 
With these, almost any grain of wood can be pro- 
duced. The rollers are 5 in. long. One produces 
heart -shape wood grains, the other is a blender; and the steel comb 
produces the fine grains of woods; a splendid combination. Shipping 
weight, 8 oz. The entire set, with instructions, for 68c

Far Superior to Anything of This Kind on the Market 

Decorate your dining room, transoms, doors and bathroom windows with our 
Stained Glass Paper. It will make your plain glassi windows look like real Stained 
Glass. When applied to the glass, only an expert can tell the difference between 
this Glass Paper and the genuine Stained or Cathedral Glass. Windows with ordi- 
nary panes of glass can be made to appear like the most beautiful and expensive 
Stained Glass. It is easily applied and durable. The effect is most beautiful 
and artistic and adds one hundred per cent to the surroundings in the room in 
which it is placed. 

This Glass Paper takes the place of curtains. It keeps out the rays of the 
sun and at the same time lets in the light with) the most cheerful effect. It can be 
made to fit any shape or size of glass. Give it a trial and convince yourself as 
to its beauty and durability. 

The border also conies in sheets S 1 ,^ inches square and can be cut to make any 
width border desired. Comers come in same size as borders and can be cut in 
corner pieces to match the border. By following directions given, you will have 
no trouble in applying this paper. , . 

Some of the reasons why our Stained Glass Paper Is preferable to Stained Glass: 

1st It does not cost one-tenth as much, 

2nd. The richness of color is superior to the average stained glass window. 

3rd.* The colors are so blended that they harmonize more perfectly than in 

4th The" brilliant rays of the sun passing through stained glass are at times 
very annoying. Not so with our Stained Glass Paper, yet it admits the light perfectly, 
5th You cut our Stained, Glass Paper to fit any size or shape of window. It is 
splendid for vestibule doors, side lights, and transoms. For bathrooms it is much 
better than curtains. Kxcellent for back windows that have an unpleasant outlook.

Wood Fibre Veneer 

For Walls and Floors 

Looks Like Genuine Wood 

bat Costs Much Less 

Fibre Veneer comes in vari- 
ous wood finishes. Recom- 
mended for walls of dining 
room, etc. — is also used for 
floors. The grain is printed in 
permanent oil colors, on all 
wood pulp fibre stock. The 
light shades may be darkened 
by using orange shellac and 
varnish. If you want to retain 
same color, use our Grip-Tite 
Wall Sizing 3BS5S (price per 
lb. 15c), then varnish with our 
Varnish, 3BS64 3 (price per 
gallon, SI. 98). Fibre Veneer 
is also washable with or with- 
out being varnished. 

How to Lay Fibre 


Apply two coats of ordinary 
flour paste to the back of tho 
veneer, allowing the first coat 
to sitak a few minutes beforo 
the second coat is applied. 

men place the veneer on the 4ftS— Plain Oak 

wall or floor, brushing it out * fiB * rwiu 

with a whisk broom, or paperhangers' smoothing! brush. After the veneer is thoroughly 
dry apply a coat of our Orange Shellac, 3BSGS3 (price, per gallon, $1.50), over the 
surface; or a coat of our Glue Size 3B6027 (price, per package. 15c), if you want a 
cheaper finish. Allow enough time for the shellac to become dry, then apply a coat 
or our Floor Varnish, 3BS643 (price, per gallon, SI. 98). 

On a floor where the cracks are open, we recommend the use of unbleached cot- 
Ion cloth. Tack the cloth about an inch from the baseboard, covering the entire floor, 
and stretch it as tightly as possible Prepare the fibre veneer according to above 
directions, and lay it over the cloth. By laying the veneer close tol the baseboard, you 
will cover up the tacks. 

*J or floors, or over woodwork, good results have been obtained by using carpet felt 
or building paper as a lining for the fibre veneer, applying] the carpet felt or building 
paper first, and paste the veneer over it. Fibre veneer on floors makes an ideal border 
around rugs.

An Imitation of Art 

No Brushes, No Size, No 
Paste Required 

To meet the demand for a cheaper 
transparency for the decoration of 
windows, transoms, and sash doors, 
we also list Vitropliane. Tliis is a 
tough paper, treated by a secret 
process, to render it partially trans- 
parent to admit light, and designed 
Mid colored to imitate stained glass. 

It takes the place of window 
shades — admits the light in a very 
pleasing effect but shuts out any 
distasteful view. For sash doors, 
the glass, when covered with 
2B793 (white), has the appearance 
of a lace curtain. 

Vitropliane will last for many 
years. It is guaranteed not to 
blister, peel or fade; nor is it af- 
fected by heat or cold. May hecuttofit 
any glass surface and without waste. 
Easy to apply— anyone can put it on.

Varnished Tile Paper 

This Sidewall represents 
enameled tiling. A var- 
nished paper that is very 
popular on account of its 
sanitary qualities, and its 
clean appearance. When 
soiled it may be wiped off 
with a damp cloth with- 
out injury to the paper. 

The scenic border is 6 
inches wide. The border 
and ceiling are varnished, 
same as sidewall. 

The paper may be made 
more durable by applying 
a coat of white Damar 
Varnish. Our 3B8660 is 
very good for this purpose, 
and will not discolor the paper. 

This varnished tile paper is excellent for kitchen, bathroom, hall, 
or vestibule. For other Avail covering write for our Free "Wall

Steam Cylinder Oil 
(Extra Valve) 

Gravity, 22.1; flash, 485; fire, 535; cold 
25; viscosity, 100 at 210. 

A high grade, dark amber col- 
ored oil adapted for use in either 
high or low pressure cylinder. This 
oil is so compounded that steam at 
high pressure will not wash it off 
the cylinder. A thin coat of oil 
remains between the moving parts, 
preventing friction and consequent 
loss of power. Oil of this char- 
acter usually sells at 60 to 65 
cents per gallon.

No. 1 Cylinder Oil 

Gravity. 21.5; flash, 4S5; fire, 600; cold,

A heavy, dark green oil of very 
good fire test. This brand of oil 
is preferred by many to the light- 
colored cylinder oils. Nothing bet- 
ter, regardless of price, for steam 
pumps or for stationary or port- 
able engines. Will not clog lubri- 
cators. A very good, economical 
oil. A fuel saver.

Oil Tractor 
Cylinder Oil 

Gravity, 20; flash, 410; fire, 475; cold 
30; viscosity, 750 at 100. 

An Oil Tractor expected to de- 
liver its 'maximum power with the 
minimum of fuel requires efficient 
cylinder lubrication as one of the 
first requisite's. 

Many oil concerns, being under 
the impression that the tractor 
cylinder lubrication requirements 
are similar to the ordinary gas en- 
gine, automobile, or steam 'cylin- 
der needs, experiment at the ex- 
pense of the user. This is costly 
and unsatisfactory to the con- 

Ruby color and of syrup consis- 
tency. The result of careful 
preparation. Absolutely safe. Re- 
duces friction. Saves oil.

Axle Grease 

M a nufactured 
in our Oil House. 
A tareful blend- 
ing of some of 
the best oils ob- 
tainable, com- 
bined with 
graphite or plumbago. Graphite 
a good filler. It has a tendency to 
fill porous wearing surfaces, and it 
lessens friction. We believe Graph- 
ite Axle Grease will last as long 
as any grease on the market. Will 
not gum or run off the spindles in 
the warmest weather. You will 
find it very economical both for 
buggies and for light or heavy 
wagons. Equally good for all kinds 
of bearings, pumps, farm ma- 
chinery, windmills, conveyors, hay 
loaders, saws, etc. In heavy gal- 
vanized iron pails.

Automobile Lubricants 

Proper lubrication is the life of machinery, Realizing this, our chief chemist and hi? 
assistants have made a thorough study of the requirements of the working parts of various 
kinds of machinery. Special attention has been given to gasoline motors and farm machinery. 
When used on the machines fur which recommended, we guarantee that our oils will give 
the maximum amount of efficiency. 

Our oil business has grown to such huge dimensions that U was necessary to build a 
largo four-story modern fire-proof building to take care of it. In this building we have 
installed sixteen large storage tanks with a capacity of many thousand gallons each. With 
these and our other facilities we were enabled to purchase oils in tank cars direct from the 
refiners at a great saving. We in turn give you the benefit of this saving, as an order from 
these pages or from our Grocery Price List, where we quote a complete line, will prove. 

AutO Oil (Light) 

Gravity Flash Firo Cold Viscosity 

27 390 440 5 225 at 100 

A pale straw-color oil for lubrication by gravity, force-feed 
or splash system of all styles and types of motors operated 
under ordinary compression and mechanical conditions. 

This is a strictly pure mineral oil and has been redis- 
tilled from the crude to obtain the highest possible fire 
test consistent with other needed qualities to insure a perfect 
automobile lubricant. 

The oil is then subjected to low temperatures by refrigeration and the congealed paraffine 
waxes removed by hydraulic presses. The resultant oil is thus given the needed cold test. 

The oil is thoroughly filtered through Fuller's Earth to remove all traces of "Free Carbon." 
You may pay more for extensively advertised proprietary brands, but it would he hard to 
improve on the quality. 

Use freely on all wearing points as well as in the cylinder. Recommended for Motorboats, 
Motorcycles, Electric Vehicles, or in fact any high speed machinery

Fibre or Sponge 
Transmission Grease 

Considered by experts to be the coming 
transmission lubricant. Its spongy, fibrous 
nature causes it to cling close to the moving 
parts. Changes of weather temperature, even 
the highest, do not affect it. It does not leak 
or drip from the casing under ordinary condi- 
tions and is therefore a reliable and econom- 
ical grease to use.
